North Korean Dynasty of Delusion: Doves, Rainbows and Double Bread With Meat

Jason Buttrill, Head Writer/Researcher for The Glenn Beck Program, joined Glenn in studio today to discuss the quickly involving situation with North Korea and the incredulous propaganda successfully fed to the North Korean people about their leaders.

Listen to this segment from The Glenn Beck Program:

GLENN: Welcome to the program. Jason Buttrill is joining us. He is my national security adviser and -- and helping me with a show that is on tonight. We're bringing the chalkboard back out for a lesson on North Korea. Not only what's possibly coming and what it means, but also the history of North Korea. And this is -- this is why Russia transformed, or the Soviet Union transformed, is because they were afraid of becoming something like North Korea is now, a very dangerous state.

JASON: And a lot of people, I think -- Kim Jong-un is basically like a punch line to most people. And they make it pretty easy. They've got some pretty hilarious stuff about the guy. You know, his body is so well in tune. He never has to use the bathroom.

GLENN: And they believe it.

JASON: They completely believe it.

GLENN: They believe he was brought in as a baby by a dove and was greeted by a double rainbow.

JASON: Right.

GLENN: I mean, they believe that.

JASON: When his father supposedly was born, a star was created in the sky. And the winter instantly turned to spring.

JEFFY: Right.

JASON: It goes beyond imagination. They actually think he's a god.

PAT: And they believe his birth is celebrated worldwide.

JASON: Oh, yeah. They're the good guys. They're not evil at all. It's everyone else that is.

PAT: Right.

JASON: But I don't think most people understand that. But there's some very interesting reasons why this evolution took place and why he is the way he is.

PAT: He really did golf an 18 one time.

GLENN: Oh, he was three.

PAT: Huh?

GLENN: He learned how to play golf at three.

PAT: Yeah. And he hit a hole in one on every hole.

GLENN: Yeah, but that was a little later. His first game, he did hit a hole in one. But he was a little older.

PAT: But not on every single hole.

GLENN: Yeah, not on every single hole until he was maybe eight.

JASON: But the most important thing, his dad invented the hamburger supposedly. He, of course, didn't call it that. He coined the very catchy name "double bread with meat," which didn't take hold out here. But I guess --

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: Much more descriptive though. I mean, double bread with meat is -- it's just plainly a better descriptive name. They nailed it.

JASON: It is, yeah. So there's a very real reason why this is not funny to them. And they've been preparing for war for 16 years.

GLENN: With the United States.

JASON: Specifically with the United States. And I think a lot of people don't realize, okay, this is not going to be another Iraq. This is not going to be an Afghanistan. We're going to war with a country that has been preparing for this day for 60 years.

GLENN: You believe we are going to war?

JASON: So this is the thing, it depends on this next nuclear test in North Korea, which analysts say is imminent. I think it could have happened days ago. I bet they wanted to do it on the anniversary of last week, but things probably happened that delayed it.

JEFFY: Good.

JASON: They just came out and said yesterday that they're going to continue to do tests. They will not be deterred. They're going to continue to do it. It depends on what this test is. And it depends on what our intelligence says it is. Now, if this test is for a miniaturized nuclear device that could be put on top of a missile --

GLENN: How do we know that? How will we know that?

JASON: That's a good question. Only the intelligence community will know.

GLENN: The -- and whether you believe the intelligence community. There was a really disturbing situation that happened at the White House yesterday. Some of the senators walked out, rolled their eyes and said, "Well, that was interesting." Apparently, it was a mess. But a senior Trump adviser has come out and said, "We know how to advise the president." And it will make your blood run cold. But it will explain an awful lot. If this senior Trump adviser -- this is not an anti-Trump person, this is a pro-Trump person. If they're accurately telling us what's happening in the White House, you better pray to God we have the right advisers around this president.

Shortly after appearing on "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" last Thursday, Los Angeles-based emergency medicine specialist Dr. Simone Gold got a call saying she was fired for speaking out about the efficacy of hydroxychloroquine in a now-banned viral video.

Dr. Gold returned to the radio program Monday to detail exactly what happened, the reason the hospitals gave for her firing, and how they threatened to fire her colleagues as well if she "didn't go quietly."

"Most emergency physicians work at more than one [hospital], as I do, and I've actually been fired from both," she told Glenn. "They told me that I appeared in an embarrassing video, and therefore, I would no longer be welcome to work there ... then they said, if I didn't go quietly and I made a fuss, they would have all the doctors in the group, you know, they'd have to go and they'll get a whole new doctor group."

Dr. Gold said she does not regret speaking out about hydroxychloroquine during the controversial "White Coat Summit" news conference held in Washington, D.C., last week. A video of the news conference quickly went viral on social media before being removed by Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and others for allegedly making false claims related to COVID-19.

"Bring it on," she said. "I want to continue to live in America. I want my children to continue to live in America. I don't want them to grow up in a place like China. When you get to a point where, not only can I not speak as a scientist, as a doctor, for what I know to be absolutely true, but you then want to cancel me and my colleagues, this is not okay. I would much rather fight than not fight ... and I want everybody to know that there are literally millions and millions of Americans who are on our side. Millions. I believe it's the majority."

Glenn then asked Dr. Gold to weigh in on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's new guidelines encouraging schools to reopen in the fall and the left's relentless drive to keep them closed.

"There's no actual scientific debate whatsoever if schools should open. None. There's no scientific debate. There's no serious person who thinks schools shouldn't open. Now, [through] some governors and policy makers, there's pressure being brought to bear on school districts, but there's no actual scientific debate. So it's going to come down to parents pressuring their local school districts to act in a responsible fashion."

Fox News host Greg Gutfeld joined Glenn on "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to talk about his new book, "The Plus: Self-Help for People Who Hate Self-Help."

Greg admits he is probably the last person who should write a self-help book. Nevertheless, he offers his offbeat advice on how to save America during what has become one of the most tumultuous times in history, as well as drinking while tweeting (spoiler: don't do it).

He also shares his "evolution" on President Donald Trump, his prediction for the election, and what it means to be an agnostic-atheist.

In this clip, Greg shares what he calls his "first great epiphany" on how dangerous cancel culture has become.

"I believe that cancel culture is the first successful work-around of the First Amendment," he said. "Because freedom of speech doesn't protect me from my career being ruined, my livelihood being destroyed, or me getting so depressed I commit suicide. Cancel culture is the first successful work-around of freedom of speech. It can oppress your speech with the scepter of destruction. We don't have freedom of speech anymore."

Dr. Simone Gold joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to set the record straight about hydroxychloroquine -- what it is, how it works, and the real reason for all the current controversy surrounding a centuries-old medication.

Dr. Gold is a board certified emergency physician. She graduated from Chicago Medical School before attending Stanford University Law School. She completed her residency in emergency medicine at Stony Brook University Hospital in New York, and worked in Washington D.C. for the Surgeon General, as well for the chairman of the Committee on Labor and Human Resources. She works as an emergency physician on the front lines, whether or not there is a pandemic, and her clinical work serves all Americans from urban inner city to suburban and the Native American population. Her legal practice focuses on policy issues relating to law and medicine.

She is also the founder of America's frontline doctors, a group of doctors who have been under attack this week for speaking out about hydroxychloroquine during a news conference held outside the U.S. Supreme Court in Washington D.C.

On the program, Dr. Gold emphasized that the controversy over hydroxychloroquine is a "complete myth."

"Hydroxychloroquine is an analogue or a derivative of quinine, which is found in tree bark. It's the most noncontroversial of medications that there is," she explained.

"It's been around for centuries and it's been FDA-approved in the modern version, called hydroxychloroquine, for 65 years. In all of that time, [doctors] used it for breast-feeding women, pregnant women, elderly, children, and immune compromised. The typical use is for years or even decades because we give it mostly to RA, rheumatoid arthritis patients and lupus patients who need to be on it, essentially, all of their life. So, we have extensive experience with it ... it's one of the most commonly used medications throughout the world."

Dr. Gold told Glenn she was surprised when the media suddenly "vomited all over hydroxychloroquine", but initially chalked it up to the left's predictable hatred for anything President Donald Trump endorses. However, when the media gave the drug Remdesivir glowing reviews, despite disappointing clinical trial results, she decided to do some research.

"[Remdesivir] certainly wasn't a fabulous drug, but the media coverage was all about how fabulous it was. At that moment, I thought that was really weird. Because it's one thing to hate hydroxychloroquine because the president [endorsed] it. But it's another thing to give a free pass to another medicine that doesn't seem that great. I thought that was really weird, so I started looking into it. And let me tell you, what I discovered was absolutely shocking," she said.

According to the mainstream media's COVID-19 narrative, the president is "ignoring" the crisis.

On tonight's "Glenn TV" special, Glenn Beck exposes the media's last four months of political theater that has helped shape America's confusion and fear over coronavirus. And now, with a new school year looming on the horizon, the ongoing hysteria has enormous ramifications for our children, but the media is working overtime to paint the Trump administration as anti-science Neanderthals who want to send children and teachers off to die by reopening schools.

Glenn fights back with the facts and interviews the medical doctor Big Tech fears the most. Dr. Simone Gold, founder of America's Frontline Doctors, stands up to the media's smear campaign and explains why she could no longer stay silent in her fight against coronavirus fear.
